Every detail is built for speed, starting with new CORSAIR AXON Hyper-Processing Technology, delivering your inputs up to four times faster than conventional gaming keyboards. The CORSAIR K100 RGB is equipped with a wide array of premium features that enhance both form and function, such as a refined aluminum frame, a multi-function iCUE control wheel, a 44-zone RGB LightEdge, and PBT double-shot keycaps with a standard bottom row. Available in a mechanical version featuring CHERRY MX SPEED Silver keyswitches, or an optical-mechanical version with exclusive new CORSAIR OPX keyswitches, the CORSAIR K100 RGB is the new pinnacle of gaming keyboards.

Debuting in the CORSAIR K100 RGB, onboard CORSAIR AXON Hyper-Processing Technology delivers peak performance unmatched by any other gaming keyboard on the market today. AXON enables native 4,000Hz hyper-polling and 4,000Hz key scanning, registering your keypresses up to four times faster than a standard gaming keyboard.

I have to say this is probably the best looking keyboard I've seen. I've got a Corsair K95 myself but I see lots of improvements made with the new K100.

    Love all the new features but they forgot to built-in the iCUE NEXUS touch screen and that wheel is so hideous, it ruins the simplistic flow of the board.

    +1 on the waterproofing if it isn't already.

    I have the Strafe RGB Mk.2 keyboard with the silent key switches. 
     
    Love Corsair keyboards, but the reason I never got the K95 was because their versions all had the audible click. I find it extremely annoying. Hopefully they included silent switches as an option in this launch.

    Corsair missed the mark with that keyboard. The wheel looks like something you see on a $70 off brand keyboard. Not a big fan of padded palm rest. The $230 price tag it needs a built in ICUE Nexus.
     
    Wonder how long until Bestbuy and Walmart will have the K100 on display to allow us to test out OPX Switches in person.
